Jeff_man, I just read your "blocked' post. ...looks like I'm not the only one that is tired of your badgering comments.

Nice trying to turn this back onto me! My frustration is directly due to your relentless and worthless posts in this thread. Thank you for being annoying enough to cause me to dig deeper into the User CP settings. I have never had to use them!

I wouldn't have read your posts if Reverant hadn't replied to your most recent "Is it tomorrow?" post. Rest assured, I will never read another letter you post.

Reverant, good luck tracking down the problem!!! Take your time and don't let it frustrate you. If all five are acting up and were built simultaneasly, maybe try building another by itself and see if you made the same mistake on all five. Compare to the rest to a working unit?

Issue #1 was found. The expansion board would randomly shutdown after a couple of minutes - the issue was that I was using the same power supply source for the expansion board as the Megasquirt itself - voltage regulator U5. The regulator couldn't handle the load and the expansion board fell first. Luckily, I had anticipated this and had reserved a spot on the expansion board for a second, on-board regulator. This fixed the issue.

Issue #2 is that there is a source of noise on the car that affects the board. I need to pinpont and the origin and isolate the noise.

Just solved the noise issue.

**** yeah.

The good news is that I won't have to eat the new expansion boards (and you won't have to wait until new ones arrive).

The bad news is that it will take 1-2 days for me to fix the boards that I have already assembled.

Hoping to ship the first batch on Saturday.

Was driving into work today thinking that he was stalling hoping that the dollar would go up vs the euro so he would come out ahead.

Not going to happen, the last episode of "Decoded", told us there's no gold in fort knox anymore, the value of the dollar should be on a steady decline now. I know, because TV said so!

The first five US units are ready and I have sent PMs to their owners for further info to setup their basemaps. These are:

palmtree
paNX2K&SE-R
chiefmg
rlogan
Jesse99James

I will begin building hattrick's ECU tomorrow, and it should be ready to ship on Tuesday (he's in Canada). Then [email protected]'s (UK) should ship on Friday.

The next units to build:

1) 2manyhobyz (US, paid)
2) bigx5murf (US, paid)
3) p800bry (UK, paid)
4) towelie (UK, not paid)
5) 85z28 (US, not paid)
6) Jeff_man (US, not paid)
7) Flyin96M (US, not paid)

Just not sure on the order to build them, since the UK gentlemen are in positions 3 and 4.

Three options here:

a) Build 1,2,5,6,7 amd ship them, then build 3, ship, 4, ship.
b) Build 3, ship, 4, ship, 1,2,5,6,7
c) Build 1,2 (and keep them aside), build 3, ship, 4 and ship, build 5,6,7 and ship with 1 and 2.

Any input on that? 4 through 7 will need to pay within the coming week.
